Finally started throwing some decorations onto my walls, now that I have a few thumbtacks to do so with. Normally tacks are highly against Res Life policy - they fine you five dollars for each hole that you pop into the walls. Luckily(?) for me, back when that bastard-ass-monkey Eugene still lived here, he didn't have respect for anyone or anything. He tacked everything into the walls, and changed the posters and such around as he saw fit. His excuse was that he could always spackle the holes up before he left. Never got a chance too, cuz Big John beat the tar outta him and slammed him into a wall. ::evil smirk::
In any case, there's a few thousand tack holes in my walls, and I can simply put new posters up by using the same holes that are already there. My half of the room's looking better now, except for the vertical strip of naked wall where my bookcase usually stands. Looks like I'm gonna have to break down and snag a door-sized poster to stick up there. Didn't have enough cash for anything that large today as I was browsing, so I just grabbed a smaller one for the time being. Now I have a drunk monkey on my wall. Fits in nicely with the Animal House poster that I already have in here...
In an email from our DM, the following was said concerning a potential new group member: "Should be fun. The more the....noise to drown out Taylor." ::chuckles:: Perhaps you'd have to know the guy to trully appreciate that statement, but I found it quite amusing.
First big fat stoopid mistake of the semester. HW #1 for my stats class was simply to make a post on the message boards to make sure that we know where they're at and how to use them. Completely slipped my mind. I went to the page, and saw the boards, but didn't post anything at the time as I was distracted by the damn fire alarm from yesterday. In the back of my mind, I remembered going to the site with the intention of making a post, so I musta falsely "remembered" doing it. Only now did I realize that I hadn't yet, and it was due an hour and a half ago. There went an easy 100 points down the drain. Points I really coulda used, since Elam grades each homework assignment like it's a miniature test. Since the grader's kinda anal about things, it's next to impossible to get 100/100 on one of those things. You're lucky to make 80/100 on a single assignment - in fact, in Stats I my grade was actually *lowered* due to the homework assignments. Quite the opposite of how homework grades work in most other classes. ::bonks self on the head repeatedly::
